RETAILOBSERVER.COM AUGUST 2015 18 Alejandra Ochoa de Thompson, the founder and creative director of Thompson Traders, grew up near the renowned copper-crafting region of Santa Clara del Cobre, Mexico, where generations of coppersmiths have used time-honored, metal- crafting techniques for centuries. Traditions of her native Mexico inspire many of Alejandra's creations, including copper tubs, which are a fixture in Mexican homes. Thompson Traders personally guides the creation of its pure copper pieces at its facility in Santa Clara del Cobre. Its lifetime finishes prevent the naturally occurring patina that changes copper's appearance over time. Thompson Traders is the largest decorative metals product provider in the United States, with a focus on copper. Located in Greensboro, NC, the company is family-owned and operated. Working with artisans in Mexico and India, Thompson Traders transforms the highest-quality materials into one-of-a-kind designs for the home. Each piece is handcrafted, unique and possesses a story that is all its own.
